4 About Us About XIN JIN SHAN XIN JIN SHAN Chinese Language & Culture School Inc., founded in 1992, is a non-profit, non-religious and non-political community language school. With the effort of over two decades, XIN JIN SHAN has become one of the most influential Chinese language and culture schools in Australia. There are more than 4,000 students in 10 campuses all over Melbourne. About the After School Chinese Program (ASC) * ASC is an After School Chinese Program catering for the increasing demand to teach Chinese language in primary schools. * We send our qualified teachers to local primary schools after school hours to teach students Chinese Mandarin. * The program started in It is now running in 14 primary schools. * Time of the program: It normally runs once a week (Mon. to Thursday) during school terms. The class time is usually from 3:45 5:30pm. * A range of fun cultural activities such as art, handcraft, singing, dancing and the introduction of some important Chinese traditional festivals and customs are integrated into Chinese learning experience, ensuring a high quality learning environment where children learn and grow while having fun.

5 After School Chinese Program Why Chinese Chinese language is important academically and professionally and will only become more so in the future. Over the last decade the importance of trade between China and Australia has grown four-fold. It is socially beneficial as well. Knowledge of Chinese language and culture can have many benefits to society. Australians who understand Chinese language and culture can enhance and security interests.

6 Why Children Should Learn a Second Languageage You can never understand one language until you understand at least two. - Geoffrey Willans The limits of my language are the limits of my world. - Ludwig Wittgenstein One language sets you in a corridor for life. Two languages open every door along the way. - Frank Smith Children pick up a different language so quickly, it is the best time to learn. A man who knows two languages is worth two men. - French Proverb You live a new life for every new language you speak. If you know only one language, you live only once. - Czech Proverb Knowledge of languages is the doorway to wisdom. - Roger Bacon Language is not a genetic gift, it is a social gift. Learning a new language is becoming a member of the club -the community of speakers of that language. - Frank Smith

7 After School Chinese Program Our Staff who have language teaching experience both locally prestigious language and education programs certification in early childhood education. * Some of our teachers are VIT registered teachers. * All of our teachers have attended LOTE Chinese the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development. * All of our teachers have WWCC -- Working With Children Certificate. * Some of our teachers have First Aid certificates. * All of our teachers have that special ability of making learning fun. * We provide in house training for all of our instructors once a school term, including some * XJS has a close partnership with the Chinese government who organize annual In-Country Language Refresher Courses for Teachers of Chinese. The intense training courses are held in China each year.

8 Our Students * Our students are primary school students from Prep to Grade 6. * Most of our students are local Australian children who have no Chinese background. Some have a little. * Students are taught in a mixed age class. The teachers take their Chinese knowledge, level and age into consideration and teach the students accordingly. Each student will be carefully catered for. Top: We can write Chinese! Middle: We love Chinese Costumes! Bottom: We love cooking!

9 After School Chinese Program Our Curriculum * We customise our curriculum for the After School Chinese Program. * Each term there is a theme. They cover a wide arrange of everyday scenarios and practical content. * We focus on themed vocabularies. Students learn practical vocabularies and use them in sentences. * The vocabularies are reinforced through role play, singing, and story telling, etc. * Examples of themes are: Greetings, Food, Clothes, Transportation, Animals (Chinese Zodiac, Chinese and Australian native animals, pets, etc.), Colours, Numbers, Housing, etc. * Any student can join our program at any stage of learning without feeling left behind. The vocabulary is always being revised. Top left: Food Top: Origami - T-shirt Left: Peking opera Facial Masks

10 Our Approach There is a Chinese proverb: Which means: Tell me, I forget, Show me, I remember, Involve me, I understand. Our teachers teach Mandarin Chinese effectively by making learning FUN! Our programs are designed to reach our students using various pathways to learning such as: Themed games Indoor-outdoor activities Chinese calligraphy and painting Arts and crafts Music and songs Cooking to integrate with Chinese culture (dumplings, moon cakes, Zongzi, etc.) Some of our teachers are Chinese Martial Arts masters! Those who are lucky to be their students can learn some Martial Arts!

11 After School Chinese Program At the end of each term, we organize a small show either at your school assembly or in the classroom. Students have opportunity to show what they have learnt about Chinese culture and language through singing, role play, and other forms of performance.

12 Participating Schools Some of our happy participating schools are: Berwick Lodge Primary School Cardinia Primary School Carlton Gardens Primary School Geelong Grammar School McKinnon Primary School Malvern Primary School Seaholme Primary School
